As a history buff, I snatched this novel up as soon as it was chosen to be a Book of the Month feature. While I did get it on digital loan from my local library, this is one I wish to own in hardback. Not only is the cover aesthetically gorgeous, the story of Count Rostov is a real treasure. A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles transports you into a world of luxury and intrigue within the Metropol hotel. Spanning many decades, the book unfolds on so many levels reaching to a climactic ending. At parts you may find yourself treading along, but I promise you the ending is worthwhile! Really hoping this gets turned into a movie.
